Additional Resources for Prayer and Reflection 

Jesuit Prayer provides the daily Scripture reading, an Ignatian reflection, and a short prayer each day through their app, on their website, or by signing up for their daily email. They also offer personal responses to prayer requests; all are remembered in Masses celebrated by the Jesuits.

Growing in Friendship with God this Lent – Pray with these meditations by Fr. William Barry, SJ, for the Wednesdays of Lent, accompanied by a reflection by the IgnatianSpirituality.com dotMagis bloggers.

The Jesuit Conference has put together an Ignatian Guide to Lent — learn about Lent and about Ignatian spirituality through the lived experiences of fellow practitioners in this video series.

Enter into a visual prayer experience this Lent with Arts & Faith: Lent. Each week, IgnatianSpirituality.com provides a video commentary about a work of art inspired by the Sunday Scriptures. Use these videos to take a new look at this season of spiritual renewal through the lens of sacred art.

Steadfast: A Call to Love – During Lent, in these turbulent times, how can we persevere in our work for justice with a steadfast spirit, rooted in love? The Ignatian Solidarity Network is inviting writers from the Jesuit and broader Catholic network to reflect on this question. (This series is also available in Spanish.)
